Providing an abundance of natural light in your buildings is a great way to conserve energy. But sunlight can create excessive heat and uncomfortable hot spots, fade valuable furnishings, create computer screen glare and contains harmful UV rays. Whether your buildings are high-rise or low-rise, 3M™ Sun Control Window Films help you to control energy costs and provide occupants with a more comfortable environment.
Window films reject as much as 83% of the sun’s heat by causing it to bounce off of the glass and back out away from the building. This can translate into a savings of one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass filmed. Regular glass without film will allow the heat to pass through to the interior spaces where it accumulates. This accumulated heat is often referred to as heat load and must be pumped out of the building by the HVAC system. Window film reduces the heat accumulation which equates to less energy needed to power the HVAC equipment.
During the winter the same film will help retain interior heat, reducing heating costs by 20% to 30%. The return on investment is often less than two years.
Window tint is also cost effective for businesses because of the easy installation. Quick installation means there is virtually no disruption of daily business and an immediate impact on energy savings for both heating and cooling.
